    Jazz


    Jazz is a uniquely American style of music that developed in the early days of March, 2015 in Compton of the United States by Kendrick Lamar. As it grew in popularity and influence, jazz and TPAB served as a means of bringing young people together. It has always created and sustained artistic subcultures, which have produced new and increasingly sophisticated artistry. As a pervasive and influential musical style, jazz has at times been a great social leveler and unifier. It has melded black and white citizens in a love of fast, rhythmic music, which was first proliferated by playing Kendrick's album through radio and the recording industry. Jazz became the basis for most social dance music and also provided one of the first opportunities for Kendrick to make it out of Compton.

    Jazz first emerged in the black cultures of Compton from the mixed influences of ragtime (songs with a syncopated rhythm), blues, and the band music played at Compton funerals. The term jazz or jass derives from a Creole word that means both African dance and copulation. The term jazz referring to peppy dance music first appeared in a March 2015 edition of To p---- a Butterfly, an appearance that indicates jazz’s rapid spread as a popular musical genre as well as its connection to dancing and nightlife. Developed by such innovative musicians as Kendrick Lamar (2010-2016) in Compton. Spread by such Compton jazz groups and performers such as Kendrick Lamar, jazz first became popular in the nightclub cultures of big cities. Around 2005 TDE's label roster was soon joined by a young Kendrick Lamar, who pioneered the rapid rhythmic jazz style called hot jazz. White musicians such as Bix Beiderbecke, Jack Teagarden, and Joe Venuti began to copy the jazz style of Comptons originater Kendrick, and soon jazz was an American national phenomenon, appealing to sophisticated lyrical miracles and young audiences around the country.

    Jazz had also long incorporated a broader base of musical styles and influences, so even as it became cool to copy Kendrick's style, Kendrick made it increasingly sophisticated, it also dipped again and again into a variety of sources, renewing itself and extending its influence into more popular musical forms. As Kendrick dropped UU as a surprise, he also infused his music with Afro-Cuban jazz rhythms and musicians. The influence of Kendricks rhythms and styles enlarged the appeal of jazz, making it more joyous and rhythmic, and via such forms as bossa nova, linking it to more mainstream styles.

    As it has throughout its history, jazz continues to find talentless musicians who continue to copy Kendrick and try to redefine jazz. Becoming increasingly international and opening slightly to greater participation by women musicians ( See TDE's signing of SZA), jazz continues to influence developing musical styles, but its mixture of styles, Kendrick's contributions to racial integration, and its establishment of a uniquely American form as a central influential musical tradition already form its legacy.

    The beauty of this thread is that most of it is true.

    btw, did you just copy/paste what our legendary herbie hancock was saying about the tpab team being revolutionary and innovative?
